Hi Jim & others. I was hoping you would take a look, at my future plans using 5/3/1.
I started a “healthier life journey” about a year or so ago and went from 130 to 100 kg. My main focus was of course losing weight, but also getting stronger and just getting in a better shape overall. I lost a lot of weight and got a lot stronger using 5/3/1. I did 4 days/week 5/3/1 + BBB(50%) and on my DL/Squat days i would do abs & cardio. It works really well and i’m planing on reaching my goal weight (85-90kg) this year. Besides the weight loss, strength and overall shape, I have a few other goals i want to achieve and that is doing weighted chins, dips and pull ups for a decent amount of sets/reps. These kind of exercises have been a major problem for me due to my fat and weak body. So what i really want to ask, is how i should go about achieving these goals while doing 5/3/1. Should i skip the BBB and focus on other accessory? Is it too big a goal while losing weight ? Any advice is greatly appreciated !
Also a big thanks to you and the work you have put in this program and the many educational post you keep making online.
